You can learn a new skill, today, for free.
You can take initiative and do a new task at work, right now, without asking anyone.
You can make a connection, find a flaw, contribute an insight, now.
I believe in a fluid system, when people are moving forward, unfortunately others are falling behind.
Not everyone will take the initiative, learn a new skill, connect and contribute.
The question, then, is not, “when is my next big break?”
No, I think the question is, “will I grab these opportunities to become someone who is already doing work at a higher level?”
You see, the thing with opportunities is that they are already there.
They are waiting for you to take them, they are not going to be given to you.
Continue doing your best. Act ‘as if’.
If the people around you do not notice what an asset you have become, someone else will.
Not everyone will notice you and that’s okay.
Those who get you, will notice you.
